Iran FM heads for Syria to discuss latest regional developments

Foreign Minister of Iran Mohammad Javad Zarif departed for Syria Wednesday morning heading a delegation to discuss major regional and bilateral issues with Syrian officials.

While, in Damascus, Zarif is to exchange views with Syrian officials on the developments in the occupied lands and the Zionist regime of Israel's latest atrocities against Muslims' sanctities in Al-Quds, IRNA reported.

The Iranian foreign minister will also meet with leaders of the Palestinian groups residing in Syria.

The Al-Aqsa Mosque and the Damascus Gate in Al-Quds’ Old City as well as the Sheikh Jarrah neighborhood have witnessed a spike in Israeli atrocities in recent weeks.

The latest rounds of Israeli aggression have also drawn a wave of worldwide condemnations.

Reacting to Tel Aviv’s violence against Palestinians, Zarif referred to Israel as the “apartheid regime” that not only steals people’s land and homes, but also shoots innocent worshippers in one of the holiest mosques for Muslims.

"It wasn't enough for the Israeli regime to steal people’s land & homes; create an Apartheid regime and refuse to vaccinate civilians under illegal occupation. It had to shoot innocent worshippers inside Islam's 3rd Holiest Mosque upon Islam's Holiest Eid," Zarif tweeted referring to the upcoming Eid al-Fitr, which marks the end of the holy fasting month of Ramadan.

In response to Israel’s atrocities, the armed wing of Palestine’s Hamas resistance movement staged a massive rocket launch against the occupied territories, with attacks expected to still grow in scale and extent.

The Palestinian Information Center reported on Tuesday that the barrage targeted the cities of Ashdod and Ashkelon that lie to the north of the Israeli-blockaded Palestinian territory of the Gaza Strip, which is run by Hamas, Press TV reported.
